MAY IS (ALMOST) HERE!

It's almost May - the final full month of the school year! To the right are a few key dates to mark down in your calendars; as always, check out the district calendar for more events and information!

 

PHOTO OF THE WEEK

CVHS Junior Maire Ireland can boast that her very own original artwork on display in The Big Apple!


Maire submitted her fanart as part of a contest for Beetlejuice The Musical on Broadway. Her artwork got accepted and is now part of a huge mural in the alley between 46th and 47th Streets outside the Marquis theatre in NYC.

COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD

Conestoga Valley's online bulletin board is designed to assist community nonprofit groups in the CV area to communicate important information in an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective way. Throughout the school year, we'll highlight new announcements, registration information, and more in this newsletter.

This week, information was added about Camp Rock!

 

FOOD AND MUSIC?!

The annual High School Spring Choir and Band Concert is scheduled for Thursday, May 5, at 7 p.m. in the CVHS auditorium.

But before you head indoors, be sure to check out the food trucks and grab some dinner before the concert! Four food trucks will be located outside the main entrance of the high school from 4 - 7 p.m.

And you can eat guilt-free because 10 percent of the sales will go to the CV Music Department!

WANT TO BE A LEADER?

CVCCS SUMMER LUNCH CLUB

CVCCS's annual Summer Lunch Club is back again this summer and now it's back to "normal," meaning no more of the grab n' go style from the past two years of COVID.

In addition to meals, each site will offer fun and interactive activities such as games, Bible stories, songs, crafts, etc. Think of it is a mini vacation bible school environment!

Below are the four Summer Lunch Club sites; parents may also receive food, but children 18 and younger will be served first:

  • Flory Park: 416 Dohner Dr., Lancaster, PA 17602
  • Country Club Apartments: 323 Aaron Ln., Lancaster, PA 176101
  • West Earl Community Park: 189 S. State St., Leola, PA 17540
  • Breakout Ministries: 2400 Anita Ct., Leola, PA 17540

For additional details about Summer Lunch Club (and CVCCS's other youth programs), families can visit https://cvccs.org/youth/.
